Even more than than THE GIRL CAN'T HELP IT! this is a classic example of Tashlin's dark, anarchic world. It just seemed wonderfully whacky in the cartoon world(where Tashlin is right up there with Tex Avery & Chuck Jones), but when it's Ms Mansfield et al in color by deluxe, Tashlin's breaking down the 4th wall stuff is really disturbing and exciting. No wonder the Nouvelle Vaguers loved him!
His visual language is very very strange ... testimonials from Sam Raimi on this disc (& John Waters on THE GIRL CAN'T HELP IT!) are fascinating as well.
